New Safety Procedures for Elementary School Students at Arrival and Dismissal

Dear Parents,

Today we are instituting a new safety procedure for elementary students coming and leaving school.  The inner circle will be blocked with cones so that there is one lane of traffic dropping off and picking up students.  A staff member will be assisting children leaving the vehicles so that parents will not have to leave their cars and traffic will flow easily. There will be a police officer present who will be giving the district feedback and suggestions for improvement.

Please note****

Kindergarten and first grade students who are being picked up by parents who are walking will be dismissed through the original front elementary school doors on West Avenue.  This will alleviate congestion in the circle.

Thank you for your support and patience as we work through this process.
